Photoelectric encoders are used to convert working parts (machine tools, robots, etc.); angular or linear displacements into electrical signals containing information about the magnitude and direction of the displacement. After further signal processing by the numeric control devices (processor complexes, digital read out devices), this information is used to control moving parts.
Encoders are commonly used in machine tools and other devices that rely upon accuracy and precision.
ORLIN are able to supply bespoke units or parts to fit your existing system, or to provide a complete solution. Our encoders are manufactured by several different suppliers and we will help you choose the correct one for your application.
